Get Your Site Indexed in 24 Hours

Most SEO’s will advise you to buy an existing site/domain (lots of age benefit), but there are times when you need to start from scratch with a fresh domain. It can sometimes take a couple of weeks to get a new domain indexed by Google (even longer to start ranking!). In order to speed up the process of getting your site indexed quickly, even in 24 hours, follow the steps outlined below:

1) Create 5 pages of content
Skip the “under construction” page and write several pages of real content, at least a few paragraphs.

2) Create Internal Links to your Pages
Put the content in a template with a menu structure to make this step easier. You can find free templates at and other places, at least to get started. Link to the content through the menu, and if you have a major landing page, link to it from the content of a page or two.

3) Tag on Social Bookmarking Sites
After just a few minutes to create an account with these sites you can submit a link to your site. This gives you an instant way for Google and other search engines to find your site because these social bookmarking sites get visited by the search engine bots (like the Googlebot) quite regularly. A few bookmarking sites to recommend:, BlinkList,, and Furl. Make sure you tag them with common words, like those you find on their tag clouds (BlinkList has a good one, just scroll down on the page to see it).

4) Comment on popular and recent blogs (with your link)
Find 5 blogs that are fairly popular, relevant to your site, and have a recent blog post (last day or two). Read the post and add a comment that contributes to the discussion, including a link to your site in the URL field.

5) Create, Submit, and Ping your XML Sitemap
You can create a free XML sitemap here then upload the file to your site (just save it as sitemap.xml). Then ping Google with your sitemap by typing in the following URL in your browser, replacing the domain name with your own:

Next, create an account with Google Webmaster Central, add your site, and submit your XML sitemap.

6) Install Google Analytics
Add Google Analytics (free) to your site. Don’t forget to verify your site with them to get the data collection started.

7) Run some Google Ads
Create an account with Google Adwords and start running some ads, even if its just for the domain name, company name, or some long tail keywords. Google has to go to your site because of their quality score, which includes “your landing page quality”. Just spend a couple of bucks and it can help jumpstart the indexing.

With these steps, you should see your site indexed fairly quickly. I can’t guarantee the 24 hours, but it is possible. At the very least it will speed up the indexing significantly (from weeks to days). Look for the “googlebot” to visit in your site analytics. Then look for your site to show up with Google by doing a search with the site: operator (for example, Enjoy!

    Not sure that buying AdWords click will help with indexing.

    I agree that it will get a Googler to look at your site, but the Google PPC team and their search quality teams are very separated and I doubt interact in the way that you assume.

    I could be wrong though. I guess for a few bucks in PPC traffic, it can’t hurt to try.

  2. Doug says:

    Plus you can use PPC to research which keywords drive traffic and incorporate that into the site.

  3. Peter says:

    All sounds reasonable, but prefer to wait until the full site is created generally. But depending on the nature of the site, we have done what you have suggested and the site will be there in a couple of days.

    Good summary

    It might be useful to also think OUTSIDE of the Google box — so that if/when the bubble bursts, you won’t be lost in space….

    If u read the google Adword help section, they wil say that the bots for the adwords and google search bots are different. But from our experience with a few sites we have, it’s not true. Google has the incentive to indexed your site and wants to direct traffic to your site so that people look and click on the ads.

    Nice tips… but the Adwords tip is not true. 2 different bots for google search and adwords.

    Just like adsense has it’s own bot (google media bot in your stats) to analyze the content of the page.

    Dorian… I can’t convince anyone but to try it themselves ;)

    Do you think there’s any point in creating a google sitemap (or other search engine equivilants?) I spent ages doing this but didnt seem to make a whole lot of difference!

    There’s no magic solutions, even tools like nemeas need a lot of hard work!

    Great blog by the way

  10. Justin Lim says:

    sitemap is good if your site does not have clear structure to guide search bots deep into your site. google / yahoo sitemaps should be considered as part of a bigger marketing effort to help drive traffic to yur site.

    Basically it’s things that you have to do but you can’t break your head over trying to figure out if it works or not. “Just do it!”


  11. Simon Smith says:

    Ok great thanks! I did hear that you should put alt tags if you are using images as links so that search engines know what they are.

    I could well of read that from this blog, so im sorry if that’s a stupid comment!
